The United States Navy and the family of SO2 Nathan Gage Ingram have invited us to be present at a memorial service to honor his sacrifice to our country.  We are honored to attend.

Nathan Ingram was lost at sea during a nighttime seizure of a vessel on the Arabian Sea. The vessel was illegally transporting advanced lethal aid from Iran to resupply Houthi forces in Yemen, according to a Navy news release.  Nathan gave his life protecting his fellow servicemembers and our country.
